I tried this recipe for breakfast this morning as I liked the concept of a carrot dosa. Very healthy for an early morning start and quick to prepare, though it takes time to cook as I cooked it on a slow flame to add that crispiness. Thanks a lot for the healthy recipe.

This is a unique combination and it tastes really nice. The carrot gives a nice crunch to the smooth dosas. Although it has little sugar, but it is not so sweet in taste. I have to say its a must try and quick snack recipe.

Being South Indians we have never made or tried making Carrot dosas. This was really easy to make and great combinations. Made only twice and we liked it.
